to be here today and discuss with you cbo's outlook for the budget and economy for the next 10 years. are analyzing shows that the country continues to debate a very large economic challenges. i will discuss the economy first and then i will turn to the budget. we anticipate economic growth will remain slow this year because of the gradual improvement in underlying economic factors will be offset. the good news is that the effects of the financial and housing prices appear to be gradually fading. we expected a upswing in housing construction and increasing availability of credit will help spur a virtual cycle of income, consumer spending, and business investment over the next few years. however several policies that will help bring down the budget deficit will result in a drag in economic activity. the increase in tax rates and the cuts in federal spending scheduled to take effect next month will mean reduced spending by both households and the government. we project an inflation adjusted gdp will increase by about 1.5% in 2013. it would increase roughly 1.5 percentage point faster w
